Sculptor, Andrew Myers, was inspired to create screw portraits by a bronze relief, depicting the life of St. Catherine. Half painting, half sculpture, these portraits are initially drawn onto a board then holes are drilled into the board to ensure the screws go in straight. Myers determines the depth of the screws based on facial features, like the nose, and plans accordingly. Myers then paints each individual screw head, sometimes totaling as many as 10,000. In addition to the painting, he also layers the background with pages from the subject’s local phone book. Myers' portraits have sold for upwards of $35,000. [AndrewMyers]
